ONE FACTOR THAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS TO LOSE TO THE DENVER BRONCOS.

I’ve always maintained that any NFL team who is going to play Denver at home are at a disadvantage because of the mile-high stadium UNLESS they arrive in Denver 3 or 4 days prior to game time so they can become acclimated to the high altitude. While watching the game on television last night, I noticed from time to time the camera showed Chiefs players sitting on the bench with oxygen masks. So I went to the Internet and the best I could determine was that the game was played November 17th and the Chiefs arrived in Denver November 16th. If this is true, it could be the reason why Payton Manning wasn’t sacked once in the entire game. The defensive linemen may have been too exhausted and gasping for breath.
